The 28th of March 1965 was one of the hottest March days on record. Hard to believe given the cold spell of the past week.

A RTÉ News report from this day in 1965 shows people flocking to the seaside at Sandymount in Dublin to enjoy the spring sunshine, and pony trekking at Kiltinan Castle, Co. Tipperary.

This clip is mute but the original news report would have been broadcast with live commentary.
